giving up his senate seat it clears for an election which could have a comeback for scott brown. every senate seat is precious in holding on their their majority. and it's going to be challenging. so why risk giving one away in a blue state especially to a guy they spent the last two years trying to take out? i have a hunch and it's nothing more than a hunch, the democrats are worrying about the wrong thing here. that brown won't end up running to replace john kerry and has a different comeback in mind. brown was last seen losing to elizabeth warren by eight points. but remaining quite popular. warren believe it or not is less popular. her favorable score in the same poll came in at 54% to 37%. this speaks to the central reason brown lost. massachusetts voters do not like the national republican party. they have not elected a republican to the house since 1994 making massachusetts the biggest state in the country with an all democratic delegation. and they've only elected one republican to the senate in 40 years. brown back in that 2010 special election to fill ted kennedy's seat. or,

years of service with the city. independent david grosso beat out michael brown in the november election. brown, a former independent, now plans to run as a democrat to fill the seat vacated by phil mendelson who is now council care. our own bruce johnson served as a master of ceremony. >>> we know you want some tickets to sunday's playoff game, but buyer beware. we'll show you why some scam artists could be the big winners this weekend. >> one of the our colder nights ahead, many areas below freezing. we'll come back, see how low it's going to go, already 28 in gaithersburg. >>> i'm anita brikman with this health alarm the fda has approved a -- alert. the fda has approved a new flu vaccine for adults that's manufactured using animal cells. that processes faster taking weeks instead of months. health experts say this type of vaccine could be a rapidly produced weapon if a new strain emerged and we face a flu pandemic. >> this health alert is sponsored by cancer treatment centers of america, care that never quits. to learn more visit cancercenter.com. >>> if you haven't done it yet, be s

this now most of the brown v. board of education case. why don't you tell us what his role was and why turn out to be controversial. >> he wrote a number of memos in those memos stumbled out on stage in a very red sequins over many years later and they came back to haunt him. so he gets there and percolating up through the courts already going back to 1950 private cases of the naacp legal and education defense fund that thurgood marshall is actually bringing and he's building that, sort of brick by brick, block by block. thurgood marshall not yet of course a justice of the supreme court. he's making the case that plessy versus ferguson, which defined the acceptability of separate but equal. they're making a case of the naacp that this cannot remain the law of the land. and it's pretty clear that the case that is scoring to become a very, very important one for the court is actually the year that rehnquist is barry's brown v. board of education. and so, which churns out a fact to be the case that strikes the doctrine down. very, very important in a unanimous decision of the supreme court. so
before we go, real quick, ed markey, your colleague, can he beat scott brown? >> i think so, and the issue is this, in 2010, scott brown was a very decent guy, but a member of this very right-wing party. he's got this problem in massachusetts, especially since in 2010 it was his election that really harolderalded a lot of problems for president obama. massachusetts vote ed overwhel overwhelmingly for president obama. running as a representative for the republican party in the senate to ask for a repudiation of barack obama is a problem. >> going to be fascinating. >> this is not just ed markey on the ballot. this is president obama and ed markey, and i think the people of massachusetts are unlikely to, in effect, reverse their vote of just a couple months ago. >> it's an all boston college race with scott brown and ed markey, the school you represented for over, i believe, 30 years. >> 32. >> thanks for being on the show. we appreciate it. >> thank you, luke. >>> we'll be right back here on msnbc, the place for politics. don't go anywhere. >>> i'm luke russert live from wash
office, the governorship is different. brown's personal popularity would give him a lot more mileage in a race for governor than in another senate contest. i have no idea where his head is, but the smart play for brown is to say no this year and wait for 2014. and if he does do that, here's something else to look for. the democrats would need an opponent for brown. right now the most popular democrat in the mix is martha coakley. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >>> thank you. it's wednesday, january 2nd. and speaker john boehner can't please anyone. ♪ >> happy new year, everybody. >> aloha, mr. president. >> the fiscal cliff vote wasn't the only drama in the house of representatives. >> the house stands adjourned until 10:00 a.m. tomorrow for morning hour debate. >> mr. speaker. >> we will promise that this vote was coming up. >> it's the most disgraceful action i've seen in this house in the 20 years i've been here. >> nine weeks after sandy, not one penny has been appropriated. >> we turned our back on them. >> the only thing our republican colleagues
. as you can see, stocks plunged. shortly after noon, senator scott brown posted on facebook of all things that he was headed back to washington because the president had reached out to the gop leadership with a proposal. then the markets bounced up a bit. but then cnbc's john harwood tweeted the white house denied skost brown's post and markets dropped again. thanks, john, for that. then came a late day surge on news that speaker boehner called the house back to washington, and late today we learned that the white house is holding a conference call with ceos on the status of the fiscal cliff negotiations. so maybe things will change once more again tomorrow. joining me now to discuss the business ramifications and what the markets think of all this, the editor of thegrio.com and msnbc contributor joy reid. >> hey, richard. >> hi, joy. do we also have fortune magazine's assistant, yes, excellent, managing editor, leigh gallagher. thanks for joining us, too. wall street seems to have been naive, maybe a little simplistic, about washington's ability to get the deal done. do you think they're

to be the panacea that i think governor brown and the california legislature had predicted. last year as a matter of fact i think we created about 3,000 jobs in green energy, that's total. that's all renewables. and at the pace that jerry brown promised, 500,000 new jobs over the next 10 years, it will take him 167 years to actually make good on that promise. david: by the way, the "wall street journal" looked at the government's figures, the federal government's figures about how many jobs were supposedly created by wind power, by a 4 billion dollars wind power project involved over 30 wind power farms, and the government claimed there were 7,000 jobs. the journal sent reporters and called in to each one of those locations, found out there were only 300 jobs. the government said 7,000. in actuality there were only 300. you can't even depend on government stats to back up their job creation numbers. >> well, they put a tremendous amount of investment into this green jobs right now. and frankly the thing we worry about is governor brown has now mandated that 33% all of energy has to come from rene
